Opaque purple turning violet at the rim with a reflective edge. The nose gives off black cherry, raspberry, dark licorice, lavender, dark chocolate, and cola. The palate is full-bodied with a silky texture. Flavors are ripe and consistent with the nose but notes of cowhide leather and scorched earth emerge to give this additional complexity. Finishes long with dusty tannin. Very balanced and sumptuous. Great value. Drink now until 2022.
